  • Ink through Circles stencil with Iced Spruce DO
  • Pocket Watch and Danger Poison were stamped in Twisted Citron DI. 
  • The Trick or Treat was stamped to complete 

  • I used the same design on this matching gift bag and card, beginning with the Skull which was stamped in the Vintage Sepia and then masked off
  • I blended the Brushed Corduroy DI through the Brick Wall stencil 
  • I inked through the Circles stencil with Fossilized Amber DO and the Chain Link stencil with Peacock Feathers DO. I added a few highlights on the circles with a brown pen
  • The Wildflower 2 were stamped in Walnut Stain DI and Peacock Feathers DO
  • On the card I stamped the TIME part of the stamp on the Peacock Feathers and the rest in Walnut Stain 
  • For the bag, I cut a tag with my die, inked around the edge with Brushed Corduroy and attached with ribbon

  • Cut a white card mat slightly smaller than black card blank and stamp Skull background randomly in Peacock Feathers DO.  Adhere to card blank
  • Cut smaller square of black card and slightly smaller square of white card.  
  • Stamp the Skull on the white card, in Peacock Feathers DO 
  • Stamp the two sentiments in black onyx versafine ink 
  • Adhere this to black mat then adhere to card blank 

  • Cut a black card mat slightly smaller than card blank and a white one slightly smaller than that
  • Stamp Skull in black onyx versafine ink and mask off
  • Blend Fossilized Amber DO through the Brick Wall stencil and Wilted Violet DO through the Chain Link stencil 
  • Stamp Danger Poison in black just over edge of skull
  • The Pocket Watch is stamped off the edge of the card,  on the right hand side, in Spiced Marmalade DI
  • The sentiments were then stamped off the right hand edge, in the black versafine and the Wilted Violet DO 
  • The LIFE stamped next to the skull was in the black versafine 
  • Remove mask from the skull and assemble the card

  • Using masking tape, mask off a square panel
  • Blend Spiced Marmalade DI, in varying g depths of shade
  • Stamp the Danger Poison in the same colour, using first and second generation stamping  (ie don't re-ink but stamp a second time to achieve a lighter colour)
  • Stamp one of the stamps from the Cogs set, in Iced Spruce DO.  Dry off with heat gun
  • Stamp skull and LIFE in black onyx versafine
  • Ink part of the Skull Background stamp around the edges to create a decorative frame
  • Carefully peel of masking tape to reveal the final card  

  • Cut a black card mat slightly smaller than card blank and a white card mat smaller than this 
  • Using Pixie powders create a background.  Dry off with heat gun then stamp Danger Poison in Wilted Violet DO 
  • Cut the background into 3 equal strips and adhere to black card and then onto card blank
  • Adhere some black spider Web on the background 
  • Cut another piece of black card and a slightly smaller piece of white card, and stamp the skull background in Picked Raspberry DO. 
  • Adhere with foam pads
  • Stamp the Danger Poison stamps 4 times on white card and cut out. Ink with Versmark and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Repeat this 3 times (triple embossing)
  • Put in freezer for 5 minutes,  take out and "crack" immediately  (creates a lovely crackle effect)
  • Adhere two under the topper with wet glue and two with foam pads, to add height
Phew...and there we go!! That's my card samples for the recent show. You can tell from the number of samples I made just how much I loved working with these. I hope you like them as much as I do

Thankyou for stopping by Crafty hugs xx

I don't really like HOCHANDA, but I am making a point of watching (and maybe buying) at 1500 Friday, just because of these stamps (I think I'm a closet goth!!).
F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S samples, thank you.
